As college students Max McDonald and Ali Tesoriero Saslafsky could have done almost anything they wanted this summer.
Max attends St. Michael’s College and Ali goes to the University of Vermont. What they decided to do with their free time was register people to vote. A noble and worthwhile endeavor to be sure…but Max and Ali, along with 4 other Vermont college students, took the idea on the road…literally-with "The Great American Voter Trek"–a marathon bicycle ride, that started in Vermont back in June and winds up today, in Wyoming.
We caught up with Max and Ali, speaking to us by cell phone from Laramie about their amazing journey…Max says he was inspired by a friend who told him of his own cross-country bike trip the summer before.
